"Love is old, Love is new, Love is all, Love is you"

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over,  it became a butterfly"

You and I, we struggle every day to be able to look through the hot messes of our lives and see the beauty inside of it.  Some days, we lose the battle and are overcome by the nastiness of the world.  But every once in a while we come across a perfect day full of beautiful things and people and ideas, and those are the days we try to achieve over and over again. 
The world is full of beauty, it wasn't created to be anything less than perfect. So, why do we pollute it with our ugliness -- our anger, our jealousy, our hatred, our selfishness, our words, our gluttony?  If we want lives full of beauty, we need to stop suffocating it with our own ugliness.
We deserve better than a world wrapped up and suffocating in ugliness.  We deserve a metamorphosed world, beautiful and perfect in itself again.  Not a world speckled with beauty, but one that shines so bright it almost hurts.  
&& all this has to start from the inside out <3
